German quintet Dew Scented have turn it up a few notches in the thrash metal department on the 13-track INCINERATE (the veteran group’s seventh studio album), going so far as to have Kreator’s Mille Petrozza and Annihilator’s Jeff Waters guest on a few cuts to truly whip up the feeding frenzy. Breakneck rhythms, speed-induced guitar solos, and a genuine mean streak catapult “That’s Why I Despise You” and “The Fraud”, while “In the Arms of Misery” retains the relentless ruthlessness reserved for bands like The Crown and Exodus. While what you see is what you get with Dew Scented, if you’re in the market for a seething thrash metal excursion that leans on the death metal tip, this is one to check out.
